As the ConDFW Art Show is essentially “Under New Management” I wanted to go over the in’s and out’s of this show.

First, my name is Sandra Kochenower and I am your Art Director. I am available by email almost any time and encourage you to contact me if any of this information is unclear to you or if something has been overlooked.

Con Membership Passes:

Unless you are a guest of the convention, no ConDFW Membership passes are given with art show space.  You will need to register and pay for a ConDFW Membership online or at the con.

Mail-In Artists:

  • The $5 processing fee is new this year. It is due to the large amount of Mail-in art we received that was either poorly documented, without layout diagrams or just too much art provided for the space reserved. Spaces are 4’ x 4’, plan accordingly. No fee if accurate layout is provided.
  • If more art is provided than the reserved space or layout allow, the Art Director will randomly select pieces to remove to arrange the panel in an appealing manner. There must be enough space around each piece in order to see the bid sheet and the artwork is confined to the 4’ x 4’ space, not dangling from the bottom of the panel.
  • Please include a check or money order for return shipping; overpayment will be refunded.
  • Any costs for return shipping not included by the artist will be taken from the sales balance.
  • If the cost of return shipping is in excess of the amount of sales, all artwork will be held until payment for shipping is received.
  • Specify any shipping instructions on the Space Request Form.  The US Postal Service will be used if no instructions are given.
  • Email [email protected] and let us know when to expect your artwork so we can retrieve it promptly.
  • All items MUST be shipped to arrive no later than February 13, 2011.

IMPORTANT: Failure to follow mail-in directions and  late submissions will result in your art not being hung: NO REFUNDS.

  • Please use the ConDFW shipping address found on the Space Request Form.
  • A  Mail-in Art Check List is provided in the registration packet to assist in making  sure you don’t miss anything.

Art Show and Auction Rules:

  • If Artists do not check in by 12:00pm on Friday, it will be assumed that they are not in attendance and they risk the loss of their space to a walk-in Artist. If you are going to be late in arriving to the convention, email [email protected] or make a note on your registration form on submission.
  • All art displayed must be your own original work, and must be matted and prepared for hanging, Art is hung using binder clips and hooks on peg board panels. Take this into consideration when selecting pieces for display. We are not responsible for damage due to  improper presentation and hanging by the Artist or Agent.
  • Panel locations will be determined by the Art Show staff and are available on a first come first serve basis.
  • Space placement is also FINAL. Certain requests will be accommodated as space, occupancy and time allows.
  • The room will be secured overnight for loss prevention, however ConDFW assumes no liability for any losses incurred.  Please insure your work against theft, damage, shipping issues, acts of higher power, etc.
  • Artists are responsible for all sales taxes.
  • Silent bids on pieces will begin on Friday and continue until the close of bidding on Saturday evening.  The Art Show Director will determine if three or four bids send pieces to the live auction. The art show staff may also select pieces to auction at their discretion.
  • Cancellation and Refund Policy: Art Show space is held to the exclusion of others.  Due to the difficulty in reselling space at the last minute, no refunds will be made after January 20, 2010.
  • Explicit nudity may be censored or segregated from the General Exhibit at the discretion of the Art Show Director.
  • ConDFW reserves the right to refuse the exhibition of any work for any reason.
